The Avenger’s director Joss Whedon is at it again. It seems that since he cannot keep his personal house in order, it’s just easier to endorse calling President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, a c**t. That’s what he did in a a Tweet yesterday.
Whedon couldn’t resist joining in on the Samantha Bee debacle which has seen the comedian apologize as well as lose a number of advertisers on her show.
Ivanka legitimized trump by being pretty & seeming sane, & libs created a (kinda sexist) Rapunzel narrative that she was ‘trapped’. She’s from a crime family, she married into a crime family, she’s a grown up. She will do as much damage as she can get away with. Sam was too kind.

Not only did he endorse the language used against Ivanka, but he said it was “too kind.”
This isn’t the first time the director has attacked the Trump family. He was actually suspended for Twitter for threatening death against the President in another Twitter vomit-fest.
Whedon has also been in the news recently after his ex-wife described the deceit and dishonesty Whedon showed her during their marriage.
Last year, his ex-wife Kai Cole penned an open letter declaring Whedon a “hypocrite, preaching feminist ideals.” He allegedly confided in her about how he felt as the producer of Buffy.
“When I was running ‘Buffy,’ I was surrounded by beautiful, needy, aggressive young women. It felt like I had a disease, like something from a Greek myth. Suddenly I am a powerful producer and the world is laid out at my feet and I can’t touch it. I would have to lie — or conceal some part of the truth — for the rest of my life.”
She would go on to say that she wanted “to let women know that he is not who he pretends to be. I want the people who worship him to know he is human, and the organizations giving him awards for his feminist work, to think twice in the future about honoring a man who does not practice what he preaches.”
It’s of no surprise that Whedon, a self-professed feminist, finds it easy and acceptable to attack a female who in reality has done nothing to him. Like any hypocrite, he asks his fans to do as he says, but not as he does. Thankfully most men won’t follow Whedon’s example because we have respect for our wives and the women in our lives.
But his obsession with the women of the Trump family didn’t end with his Tweet about Ivanka. Today, he targeted First Lady Melania Trump with a picture of Andy from Shawshank Redemption just after he escapes from prison at the end of the film. The image is most likely in reference to the conspiracy theories surrounding Melania’s unhappiness with President Donald Trump.

Like many others in Hollywood, Whedon openly shares his disdain for anyone outside of their political belief cult, and at best scoffs at them. At worst, he uses his platform to launch hate-filled attacks against people.
Maybe Joss Whedon should focus on putting his house in order instead of casting stones. He might have been able to put together a script for Batgirl if he focused on his work.
